Twitter Link Roundup #257 – Fresh Resources for Small Business, Startups, and Design! Mike | February 20th, 2015

I’ve written before about things that entrepreneurs can learn from children but, before I saw this video, I had no idea what dancers can learn from babies. This little one is brimming with talent and creativity and I hope that scouts from the Bolshoi, The Joffrey Ballet and, the New York City ballet are watching!

Now that you’re inspired to try out some new moves.. it’s time now for our weekly Roundup! Here are a slew of fresh links and articles we shared with you over the past week on our  crowdSPRING Twitter account (as well as my own Twitter account). We so like to talk about fonts, logo design, web design, startups, entrepreneurship, small business, leadership, social media, marketing, economics and other fresh stuff! Enjoy!
